State yet without information on Mochovce NPP final budget
The economy ministry is waiting for an analysis from Slovenske Elektrarne which is expected to give an answer to the final budget for the completion of two nuclear blocks.
The economy ministry is yet unable to say whether the completion of the third and fourth nuclear unit in Mochovce will require more funds and whether deadlines will be met in spite of the fact that it holds a 34-percent share in Slovenske Elektarne, the company responsible for this project. Economy Minister Peter Ziga informed journalists on Tuesday that his ministry was still awaiting the analysis on completion of nuclear units from Slovenske Elektarne. „It’s their turn. Slovenske Elektarne is expected to provide the ministry with the schedule for further procedures to complete Mochovce NPP as well as the cost structure,“ said Ziga. He did not specify when the ministry could receive this analysis.

The Nuclear Regulatory Authority warns that removing the shortcomings in the documents does not mean that the administrative proceeding in connection with the issuing of the permission for the launch of the third and fourth nuclear block in Mochovce continues.
Úrad jadrového dozoru SR však upozorňuje, že odstránenie nedostatkov v dokumentácii neznamená, že správne konanie vo veci vydania povolenia na uvádzanie tretieho a štvrtého mochoveckého bloku pokračuje.
